First, I'm not a corporate shill. My other reviews are some evidence of how long I've been buying stuff from Amazon. I am a Mac person and I enjoy gadgets. I am running the EyeTV on an '08 model MacBook and using over-the-air digital broadcasts.
The new EyeTV Hybrid (2009 version with FM radio reception) is an amazing package of hardware and software. It has its flaws, notably the remote control is not intuitive. But this could be sold without the remote and it would still be a great product. Here's a quick breakdown of important information:
-Which EyeTV Hybrid is this? This model came out in January 2009. Earlier models lack the FM radio tuner. Supposedly the hardware is better than earlier models. It also ships with the latest EyeTV 3.1 software.
-Ease of use: if all you are doing is watching broadcasts, the EyeTV package is easy to use. I would not recommend it for my elderly parents, but non-techies will have it up and running in a few minutes (assuming you have an antenna feed handy). Recording broadcasts is very easy too. Where it gets a little time consuming is taking those recordings and crunching them into smaller formats (e.g., for use on a home media server or an iPod). Don't get me wrong, this is still easy to do if you are at all technically inclined, but most people aren't going to sit there and methodically compress recordings.Read more ›
I immediately substituted it in my Intel iMac Core 2 Duo setup, and confirmed that my software v3.1.1 was current. Imagine therefore my surprise and disappointment when the previously marginal NBC station was not only not stronger but worse, it could no longer be received at all! Worse, another formerly solid station (WKNO) dropped to only marginal in signal strength. Thinking there must be some error in my plugging and unplugging, I shutdown the EyeTV application and reinstalled the 2008 model and restarted the EyeTV application. Presto, the signal strengths all returned to their former higher readings, and the missing NBC station reappeared, albeit with its marginal signal strength.Read more ›
Elgato has managed to shrink a digital HDTV tuner into a stick the size of a so-called "thumb drive", which turns any USB 2.0-capable Mac (G5 and later) into the coolest TV on the block. This little USB-plug-in device feeds an HD signal into the Eye TV software, which gives you access to a control center bringing together live TV, previously recorded programs, and a TV Guide-powered listings screen.
EyeTV affords me several luxuries by bringing TV to my Mac. First off, I can relax with one of my shows in any location, anywhere my MacBook Pro can go with me. On an airplane; at a friend's house; lying in bed late at night; anywhere. Watching TV in full screen most closely replicates the traditional television viewing experience, with the added benefit of the beautiful on-screen channel navigation, program guide, and program information courtesy of EyeTV and TV Guide.
Watching television while otherwise working on my Mac is where EyeTV gets to be real fun. I can set the program window to hover over all other open windows on my screen, and watch TV no matter what else I am doing. Gotta get a spreadsheet done? Code a webpage? Write a review for AAUG?Read more ›
